Review: Mouse – Richard Ford Burley


Mouse is probably everyone’s last choice in almost anything. Mouse is autistic, non-verbal, but a bright kid. After making friends in his new school with a girl named Bliss, he sees a ghost of his neighbor’s sister, learns some magic–and learns that he’s apparently destined to save the world.

Why this book?: I know the author from twitter, and they offered me a copy when it came out. Plus it just generally sounds amazing.
